OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Democratic Republic of Leckenby is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Arsene Wenger with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 20.321 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arjen. The average income tax rate is 35%, but much higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, and the Leckenby Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. Crime is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leckenby's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Euro.

Leckenby is ranked 1st in Emirates and 43,762nd in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 77 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
